Excerpt for Second Chance by the Sea:
“El, you okay? You seem to be someplace else.” He didn’t let her hand go.
She glanced at his eyes. The ones that made every woman who met him melt. “I was thinking about the day we met.”
He put his arm around her and drew her close. “Ah, you mean the day I gallantly saved your life.”
She laughed and snuggled closer. “You did not. I was tired that’s all.”
“Please, let me think you needed me. There are so few instances.” He kissed her forehead and went over to the captain to help with their luggage.
The smile slid off her face. For a moment she felt… alone. Need him? If there was ever a time she needed him it was now, but they were set on a collision course and she had no idea of the outcome. She shook off the uneasy sensation and grabbed some of the small bags. Alan was on his cell phone.
